Measuring poly(acrylamide) flocculants in fresh water using inter-polymer complex formation

Announced today the Royal Society of Chemistry have accepted another manuscript by Thomas Swift, Linda Swanson, Andrew Bretherick (from SNF (UK) Ltd) and Stephen Rimmer. Titled ‘Measuring poly(acrylamide) flocculants in fresh water using inter-polymer complex formation’ this follows our recent communication about the use of fluorescence PAA as a polymer probe and demonstrates it’s use in several industrial fresh water flocculation plants around the UK.
